Portrait Miniature of Young Woman in Superb Case c1820
Please refer to our stock # a1580 when inquiring.
A fine miniature painting, done in watercolor on organic wafer, of a young woman. The sitter, set against a stark taupe background, is wearing a white dress dotted with a tiny flower motif. A diaphanous blue scarf is criss-crossing her bodice, and is fastened with a brooch in the form of a daisy. As striking as the painting is, it is the back of the case that is truly remarkable, with an elaborate gold or brass cutout featuring the initials "LOT", floral boughs, and drapes and tassels. This rests atop tightly woven plaits of hair covering the entire back.
The condition of the painting and the locket is excellent, with no flaws or restoration. Sight size is 2 1/4" by 2", with the locket size being 2 1/2" by 2 1/4".
